Has anyone else seen the Knitty Gritty episode on knitting a pair of boots. I’ve seen it before and it was on again last night. I could hardly sleep last night because my mind kept trying to design a pair of boots by crocheting them instead. The knitting of the boot took ten (10) double pointed needles to complete. I love the design feature that the right and left stanting decreases create in the knitted boots, but I just don’t want to fiddle with all of those dpn’s.
I can’t stop designing in my head a pair of crocheted boots. What you think? I have some old shoes and boots that can be converted. I’m going to try it. And she used unspun wool….you guys know what wool does to me, so I’ll be using something different. And wouldn’t those boots felt if they get wet, or does the water need to be hot? Well, I’m going to use a super chunky yarn and give it a go soon, because my minds eye won’t leave me alone.
